The Sitka National Historical Park Project Jukebox is comprised of oral history interviews, photographs, and a virtual tour of the Russian Bishop's House. The collection is designed to provide an overview of Sitka National Historical Park - its history, its facilities, and its importance to members of the Sitka community.
The Sitka National Historical Park Project Jukebox is available online at www.uaf.edu/library/jukebox. Copies of the Project Jukebox are also available for review at Sitka area libraries and the Rasmuson Library at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
